Surely, you’ve all seen the commercials by now. People all around the globe are sending in their DNA samples to find out who they really are. The cool folks at AncestryDNA™ were kind enough to gift me not one, but two AncestryDNA test kits!
If you’re anything like me, you love to curl up with a good book in hand and a nice cuppa hot chocolate – oh, it’s still Summer? Well, how about a frozen hot chocolate then…
To write is human, to receive a letter: Devine! – Susan Lendroth
In an age where folks incessantly check their phones and tablets for new messages and where “likes” are the golden stamps of approval, this old soul still believes in the good old-fashioned art of putting pen to paper. As someone who frequents stationery stores, has an address book and actually buys stamps, I can’t recommend letter writing enough. It’s a surprisingly cathartic way to show someone you care and hey, why should phone bills and take-out menus dominate our mailboxes anyways? Spare 49 cents and send a note that’s more than 140 characters to someone you love. It’ll probably be the cheapest thing you do all day.
“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.”
I’m just about to head out and enjoy the sunshine and clear blue skies on this beautiful Sunday. Life is good…in just four days my marine (whom I haven’t seen since JANUARY!!) will be home for three weeks and I’m sooooooo looking forward to seeing him!
Wanted to share some sunshine and happiness through these photos with y’all – hope you’re having a great day wherever you are and remember to appreciate all of the little things and especially the time you get to spend with loved ones!
Spread kindness and cheer, xo
